Ever get stuck on what to pray? Check out this beautiful little prayer from the Apostle Paul and get unstuck.

Kneel before our Heavenly Father and pray through each word with all your heart, filling in the blanks with anyone the Holy Spirit brings to  mind:

I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen __________ with power through his Spirit in __________’s inner being, so that Christ may dwell in __________’s heart through faith.

And I pray that _________, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that __________ may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!


(Adapted from Ephesians 3:14-21)
